food On Saturday, 10-4, the 2nd Annual Havemeyer Sugar Sweets Festival takes place at the corner of Havemeyer and Metropolitan in Williamsburg. It's a sidewalk sale benefiting City Reliquary, with all sorts of cookies, brownies, pies, cakes, and other bundles of sugar-rush goodness. Babycakes, The Treats Truck and Saltie (an outlier) are some of the pro purveyors and home bakers are welcome. The City Reliquary, which began as a display in a ground-floor apartment window, has become a vital museum and community organization that celebrates New York history. To that end, a "roving Sugar Historian" will be on hand to discuss the role of sugar in the rise of New York industry. You can ignore all that, of course, and head straight to the cupcakes.
